Krysta Felix

Graduate Student, Wu Lab

Krysta Felix graduated with a B.S. in Molecular Biology from Brigham Young University in 2013. She entered the ABBS graduate program of the University of Arizona in 2013 and joined the Wu lab in 2014. Her project focuses on the mechanisms that cause commensal Segmented Filamentous Bacteria to boosts antibody responses.
